Ballou Wright Building Information:

The Ballou Wright Building is located between E. Pike Street and E. Pine Street in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Capitol Hill is one of Seattle's more prominent nightlife and entertainment areas and is considered the center of the city's counterculture communities. Prior to the filming of the series, the creative office space was available for lease.

"This one-of-a-kind 10,400 SF office suite enters through a private entrance off 12th Avenue and includes 20 feet of storefront. From there the space opens up to a 5,000 SF open work space where ceilings soar to 18 feet. Heavy timber beams have been sandblasted and fir floors refinished to reveal the building's original character. An open staircase flows to another 5,000 SF of work space on the lower level with 13 foot exposed fir ceilings, polished concrete floors and a glass garage door that opens up into the alley. The entire space features natural light. Make sure not to miss the original walk-in safe, now set up as a bar offering a place for employees to escape or celebrate." ( Building Listing)

The Ballou Wright Building is located 2.3 miles from Pier 70, used in the filming of the seventh season. After the filming of the series, the space was leased to The Riveter, a co-working space for women. The Riveter closed during the COVID-19 pandemic and the space is once again on the rental market.
